Risk Assessments

Risk assessments are an important step in protecting your workers and your organisation, as well as complying with the law. Accidents and ill health that arise from risks can ruin lives and significantly affect your organisation if provision of services/supplies is lost, equipment is damaged, insurance costs increase or you have to go to court.

Employers are legally required to conduct general risk assessments of their work activities and specific risk assessments related to such risks as display screen equipment, manual handling, hazardous substances and fire. Risk assessments must be conducted by a competent person.

We can help you with the risk assessment process and show you how to identify any significant risks within your organisation. We will show you how this can be achieved at minimum cost and with maximum benefit to your organisation.

One of the specific risk assessments clients request our assistance with are fire risk assessments. A fire risk assessment is vital for business continuity planning, meeting legal requirements and to satisfy insurance organisations. In the event of a fire at your premises you may be challenged to provide a suitable fire risk assessment by the enforcing agency and your insurance company.

Organisations that need health and safety risk assessments will often need help with health and safety policy/manuals.

Fire risk assessments were conducted for a NHS Trust as part of a comprehensive support service while their dedicated health and safety specialist was being recruited.
